21.0.1
06 November 2019

Professional image editor.

Overview

Photoshop is available as part of Adobe Creative Cloud for as little as $20.99/month (or $9.99/month if you're a previous Photoshop customer).

Adobe Photoshop, the industry standard for digital image processing and editing, delivers a comprehensive package of professional retouching tools, and is packed with powerful editing features designed to inspire.

Features:

Frame Tool for easy masking

Easily mask images by placing them into frames. Use the Frame Tool (K) to quickly create rectangular or elliptical placeholder frames. You can also convert any shape or text into frames and fill it with images.

To place an image into a frame, simply drag an Adobe Stock asset or a libraries asset from the Libraries panel or from your local disk - the image automatically scales to fit the frame. Content placed in frames is always placed as Smart Objects so that it can be scaled non-destructively.

Content-Aware Fill reimagined

Powered by Adobe Sensei

A new, dedicated Content-Aware Fill workspace provides you an interactive editing experience to achieve seamless fill results. You can now choose which source pixels to use and rotate, scale, and mirror the source pixels thanks to Adobe Sensei technology. You also get a live full-resolution preview of the changes and an option to save the result to a new layer.

New multiple undo mode

You can now use Control + Z (Win) / Command + Z (Mac) to undo multiple steps in your Photoshop document, just like in other Creative Cloud apps. The new multiple undo mode is enabled by default.

Usability improvements

Reference Point hidden by default

While transforming items, you can now easily move items on the canvas. The reference point that appeared while transforming items is now hidden by default. You can select the Toggle Reference Point checkbox in the Options bar if you want the reference point to appear.

Double-click to edit text

You can now double-click a Type layer with the Move tool to quickly begin editing the text in your document. You do not need to switch tools anymore to edit text.

Auto-commit

Efficiently crop, transform, and place or enter text with auto-commit. You no longer need to press Enter (Win) / Return (macOS) or click the Commit button in the Options bar to commit your changes.

Transform proportionally by default

Photoshop now transforms most layer types (such as pixel layers, type layers, bitmaps, Placed Smart Objects) proportionally by default. Shapes and paths, that are vectors, still transform non-proportionally by default.

Prevent accidental panel moves with Lock Workspace

Use the new Lock Workspace option to prevent accidentally moving workspace panels, particularly when you’re using Photoshop on a tablet/stylus. To access this option, choose Window > Workspace > Lock Workspace.

Live blend mode preview

You can now scroll over different blend mode options to see how they look on your image. Photoshop displays a live preview of blend modes on the canvas when you scroll over different blend mode options in the Layers panel and the Layer Style dialog.

Symmetry mode

Paint your brush strokes in a perfectly symmetrical pattern. While using the Paint Brush, Mixer Brush, Pencil, or Eraser tools, click the butterfly icon in the Options bar. Choose from the several available types of symmetry - Vertical, Horizontal, Dual Axis, Diagonal, Wavy, Circle, Spiral, Parallel Lines, Radial, Mandala. As you paint, the strokes are reflected live across the line of symmetry, allowing you to easily create intricate symmetrical patterns.

Color Wheel to choose colors

Use the Color Wheel to visualize the color spectrum and easily choose colors based on harmonies such as complementary colors and analogous colors. From the Color panel fly-out menu, choose Color Wheel.

Home screen

Get started quickly with the Photoshop Home screen. Access it at any time to find out about new features, connect to learning content, and jump right to your open documents. Click the new Home icon in the Options bar to access the Home screen at any point.

Been using Photoshop since version 1.0 and every new version usually introduces some new exiting feature. This latest version is the first version I had to deinstall and go back to the previous version, as really basic features do no longer work now.
Tasks such as resizing a layer now only allow me to do this proportional, even if I turn the option off and drag on the middle handle. Only way to resize only width, as an example, is to enter a value into the percentage field which takes much longer. Sometimes the handles do not show up at all and you have to switch the view to another document and then come back to the document you want to work on.
Thought this might be caused by the Mac system as I am using the latest system 10.14.3 and rebooting fixes some of the issues for a little while. But then with the same system going back to Photoshop CC 2017 fixes all these issues. The new content aware fill with preview, also nice also crashes and is very slow. Overall cannot use this version of Photoshop due to these bugs.
Wanted to contact Adobe to report these issues, but there is no easy way of contacting the company, or file a bug report, maybe they think they do not have no bugs in their software? Very frustrating indeed.

New version crashes every time I apply a layer effect. Adobe’s QC department is ridiculous. We are paying to beta test their software. 1 star.

Stay away from this app!!! There are much better, totally Mac based, non-subscription Alternatives! This app is bloated, performs raggedly. This is not the way a Mac app is supposed to be!

you have to read release notes, it's a new feature. Hold Shift to scale non-proportionally

That works but does not make sense whatsoever. Since I have been using computers almost 30 years now holding down the shift key to resize something means to resize it proportionally whoever at Adobe thought this should now be reversed is not quite in their right mind. However since there is a resize keeping proportions button if unticked it should still work as before and not still resize proportional.

Well, I knew this day would come, but Mojave 10.14 broke Photoshop CS5. I guess it's either on to Creative Cloud or learn something new...

I'm still using CS 5.1 in Mojave. Is your 'broken' down to not being able to save? If so, the work-around is to save to a USB drive, stick or a ram disk.

However, I am searching for a Photoshop replacement and have hated all I've tried, largely because their interfaces are too small on my 5K monitor.

They sure make it hard to find release notes for the April 2018 update. I get only two short sentences in their control center. Anybody?? I come to deeply hate Adobe.

That’s kind of a weird comment. Apparently, you’ve never used Illustrator versions 6-11, or InDesign 1 and 2, or Dreamweaver and Flash after they bought Macromedia and tried to “Adobify” the interfaces. I won’t even get into the horrid new overly-complex interface in Acrobat Pro. I’ll stop there.

@ Tim27 : I think you're talking to a fanboy. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it'll only ever be a skewed conversation.

Select Subject isn't quite as awesome as you seem to think – yet. Let's hope Adobe puts a bit more effort into it.
